Marry Date or Dump: Pride and Prejudice

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-10-38-54-am

Happy Monday, friends! Over the last five feverish, ouchy-throated days I have, of course, watched both Pride and Prejudice adaptations. So I’ve got Jane Austen on the brain! I’ve done a lot of Austen combinations in past Marry Date or Dumps, but I don’t think I’ve done this one. This is frankly shocking because I think about it a lot. We’ve got Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley, and Colonel Fitzwilliam. At first, it seems pretty straight forward. But people can have very different, very strident opinions when it comes to these men. One of my favorite English teachers in high school strongly felt that Colonel Fitzwilliam was the best man of the bunch. Let me know who you’d pick by writing who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump in the comments! Continue reading

Marry, Date or Dump: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Hi friends! I’ve missed Marry, Date or Dump so I thought I’d do a few in October. I’ve been wanting to reread Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children for awhile. I read it during a confusing/grumpy time, and I’m worried my feelings about life seeped into how I felt about the book. So many people I know love this one and now there is a movie! When faced with the characters from the series, who would you marry? Who would you date? And, finally, who would you dump? Let me know your answers in the comments. Continue reading

Marry, Date or Dump: Mr. Darcy, Edward Cullen, & Jay Gatsby

I know this pairing is totally random, but I just picked three idealized (but occasionally obsessive) romantic male characters to choose from this week. We have Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice and Edward Cullen from Twilight and Jay Gatsby from The Great Gatsby. All seem like they would be fun, but potentially perilous, to date. Let me know who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump in the comments!

Marry, Date or Dump: Mr. Darcy

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 12.54.08 PM

Happy Monday! Who had a nice holiday weekend? I hope everyone. I rewatched (both) Bridget Jones movies last week and definitely have Darcy on the brain. I thought it’s be fun pick three versions of Mr. Darcy to marry, date, or dump this week. I decided on Mr. Darcy from the book (or traditional movie adaptation if you like!), Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones (sawoon), and William Darcy from The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Let me know who you’d marry, date and dump in the comments!

Marry, Date or Dump: Mockingjay

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 11.27.01 AM

Who’s excited for Thursday? Last year, before Mockingjay One I asked if people wanted to marry, date or dump Peeta, Gale, and Finnick. This year, I’m going a little older and want to know what you think of Haymitch Abernathy, Plutarch Heavensbee, and Caesar Flickerman. If you feel like playing, let me know in the comments who you would marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump. Also feel free to chat about if you are looking forward to the movie or dreading it. I’m a little of both … this one gets sadder than sad so I expect a lot of tears.  Continue reading
